As many others have said - for that kind of rent buy a house.
A long time ago I used to live 3 hours northwest of Edmonton (You must have been in the Fox Creek area) and enjoyed the place. Calgary was quite the culture shock but we moved into the north part of the city (On the advice of friends living in the SW) and we have never regretted it.
If you do look to buy a house try the neighbourhoods in the area between Centre Street and Deerfoot. Avoid the infills (POS and oversized and right on top of your neighbours) and try to find a solid little bungalow.
